I have a number of scars from disc searches in the schule. I walked away from Devil's Ridge in the Detroit area with over twenty different cuts and scratches. Hole 5 or 6 at Cass Benton cut me on the arm and the face at the same time.

First day playing in Virginia at Burke Lake I sprained my ankle.

Had a widow maker tree branch (at least 4" thich and 15' long) fall about 8 feet behind me, 10 seconds after I walked through the space at Wagner Park in Royal Oak, Michigan.

My first season at a very small course called Raintree park, I had a beautiful S curve shot just begining to hyzer toward the basket on the longest hole, but it was going to go by a large group since there was only about 25 feet between the basket and the next tee. I had time to yell Fore, Fore, FORE, LOOK THE F*<% OUT! before it hit a guy in the head. His friends had warned him too, just in time to turn into it. He was wearing a hat and it still drew blood. I didn't feel as bad later though, because they were playing best shot dubs with 4 teams, and the losing team, which he was on, stood up against a wall to get beaned by everyone else.

Here in Florida you have to look for Gators. I don't really go in the water since moving from Memphis. I have also seen water moccasins here. The other day I was playing and got stung by some yellow jackets. Little did I know I was allergic. My ear started feeling like it was full of water. Then my scalp itched like crazy. I had never reacted before and didn't know what was happening. I figured it out when my lip started feeling fat. I ran out of there and got to a gas station, took benedryl and called an ambulance. I just didn't know how far it would go. Your throat can swell up. Never got that far and didn't have to take the ambulance when it arrived. Now I carry an Epipen when I go. Pretty scary stuff.

Great job getting some benedryl quickly. Thats the best way to make sure your throat doesn't close up. I carry some in my bag at all times just in case someone needs it or if my allergies got carzy.
The more I throw, the easier it gets-

Boy I'm glad I don't live anywhere there are poisonous snakes or alligators. I spend a lot of time looking for discs and like not worrying about wildlife. I have been stung by wasps before. I've also gotten bloodied and torn clothes while looking for discs.

Also, some of the discs I pull out of lakes have leeches adhered to them. That is gross scraping those things off. At least I wear waders.

Yeah, at Hornet's Nest Park in Charlotte, one time I accidentally threw into a family reunion. You need to watch out for large mobs of angry people who like to set up their party in the middle of a fairway that's blind from the tee box.

Funny thing was, eventually I spent the next 5 minutes showing a few of the people from the family how to throw a disc and explaining disc golf to them.
